Fodor’s Expert Review
This simple tavern serves inexpensive Okinawa favorites such as goya champuru (a stir-fry using bitter melon); Korean-style bibimbap, a delicious, tangy, healthful dish of kimchi, bean sprouts, spinach, and other vegetables stirred into rice; and a plate of katsuo (bonito) sashimi big enough for two or three people. There's live music on weekends.
